Another Gold Star family member also vouched for Trump’s concern and compassion for the families of fallen soldiers and believes his words from another call that’s made news must have been misconstrued and politicized. Indeed, the Florida Democratic Congress member who started this fire, when put on the spot, admitted she couldn’t remember exactly what Trump said.
If you wonder why you see stories on the Internet about one outrageous thing or another that Trump allegedly said, but you don’t see me commenting on them, please believe me, it’s not due to partisanship. If I thought some of those “outrageous” quotes were real, I would say something. But I’ve made it a rule of thumb that whenever I see one of those hair-on-fire stories about some new Trump “outrage,” I wait until I find out if there’s any truth to it at all (usually not) or if it’s even, as Hollywood puts it, “based on a true story” (which usually means it's about as accurate as saying that “Bambi” is based on the true lives of deer.) There are entire websites that seem to survive primarily on bogus “Trump Is CRAAAA-ZEE” clickbait headlines.
I know Donald Trump. I’ve talked to him privately, I’ve debated him, and I’ve interviewed him. Yes, he’s capable of shooting from the hip and making some questionable statements, particularly when he’s on a Twitter tear. But if you expect me to believe that he showed disrespect to the family of a fallen US military member, then you’d better have it on tape. Sorry, mainstream media and Democratic Congress members: in that area, Trump’s reputation for showing respect is a heck of a lot more solid than your reputation for honesty about Trump.
